The SAI-01 is the leading knife in the Global SAI range. As the 19cm Chef's knife it can perform any kitchen task and is the perfect all-round knife including mincing, dicing, chopping and slicing. The handle design incorporates an ergonomic thumb rest which helps set the right grip for the best cutting technique. The 19cm chef's knife is a good size and is equivalent in the SAI range to the best selling knife in the classic range the G-2. The cook's knife comes in two further sizes. The SAI-06, a 25cm chef's knife will be more suited towards professional chefs, the SAI-M01 at 14cm is the smaller version of the chef's knife.
The blades themselves are sharpened to a 12.5-degree edge, which has been mirror-polished by hand for extra-long lasting sharpness. The handles as with all Global Knives are hollow and weighted; the handle has an ergonomic thumb rest for a smooth, efficient cutting motion and comfortable grip. The seven dots on the handles are designed to represent the seven noble virtues of the Samurai’s code of honour: Integrity, Courage, Compassion, Respect, Honesty, Honour and Loyalty. Global SAI sit as Global's premium knife range with superior cutting performance and edge retention.
